Flashing water light - will drain water but will not make coffee
When I try to make coffee, it starts grinding and making noise (I think the pump), but then right when the coffee normally comes out, nothing happens. I can turn the knob and water comes out and it's acting as if that's completign the brew process. It will dispense water anytime

Re: Flashing water light - will drain water but will not...
Something is wrong on the coffee cycle side of the machine. Check the brew unit screens and and try doing a preground cycle with out inserting coffee. IF water comes out, I would looking into your grinder a little bit and try increasing the grinder size.

Hello. I really need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, from the symptoms you're describing, it sounds like the drain pump is jammed. A lot of dishwashers turn on the drain pump first to remove any stagnant water sitting in the bottom of the pump. Then, fresh water is let into the tub, fills to the proper amount, then the main pump starts. The lights flashing are an error code--different combinations of buttons flashing mean different things. On some models, a button light will flash a certain number of times, pause, then flash another number of times. This is a binary code telling the user what is malfunctioning. That's why I need the model number and any other info to help diagnose the issue. Thanks!
How old is your machine ? and what maintenance have you done over time such as replacing the shower curtain located at the pourring end of the hot water ? I had too very loud noise coming occasionnally from the stainless steel rack holding the cup while coffee is delivered. If your ground coffee is too fine it will stop flow during making a shot. Is water coming out when no coffee is placed in the portafilter.The water pump on this machine is a cheap pump that has to be replaced over time. Mine is 7 years old and has delivered four cups of expresso everyday of the year, and still working.
After grinding did you hear the brew group goes up and pump start? If you hear the pump start and stopped, itis blockage in the brewunit metal screen. Just needs cleaning.
If you don't hear the pump starting, the problem is with the faulty micro switch inside the gearbox , that is behind the plate of brewunit.(service center job)
in our machine we wanted a stronger coffee so we adjusted the auto grinder (where the coffee beans are housed) to the finest setting thinking the finer the grind the stronger the coffee...after doing this the machine wouldnot make coffee...we sent it away while still under warranty and the tech said that the grind selection was too low so they just turned the grinder back up a notch and it worked fine ....dont know if this will help but it's worth a try!
